What to Wear: 2018 Edition

What’s in? What’s out?

With every new season comes fresh predictions on up and coming fashion trends, which will move from runways to high streets. The predictions range from practical to eccentric and to downright wacky, but there are a few that stand out and could be worked right into the wardrobe of any St Andrews student. Here are the trends for the new year that will ensure fashion and function.

AMERICANA- Seen primarily on the runways of Raf Simons, the triad of red, white and blue works perfectly for a university town where a third of the students’ hail from the United States. Even if you’re not American, one can still partake in the energetic colours, or simply choose between stars and stripes. The semester ends long before the fourth of July, but that’s no reason not to incorporate loud prints or colour to brighten up the winter.

ANORAKS – Practical outerwear made many appearances in an extensive range of colours. Designers have begun taking into consideration the rain and wind that dominate the British Spring. The anorak  is ideal for layering over jumpers and less practical outerwear like a leather jacket. The trend is easily adaptable, through a simple black raincoat for those who favour practicality, or alternatively seek a fluorescent yellow parka for channelling Paddington bear vibes.

FRINGE – Across the radar there is a love for fringe this season, in a multitude of fabrics, lengths and shine value. Although the trend is sometimes considered a little overdone considering its association with festivals, this season sees an update in the look, from floor length t-shirt dresses to Rihanna worthy knee-high boots. Consider this look for a ball or perhaps Valentine’s Day. It could be through something small like tassel earrings, or dangling from a clutch bag or much bigger, with a 1920s style flapper dress.

SHEER – As staple clothing item to every university student, mesh tops are here to stay, whether yours be plain, sparkly or adorned in embroidered flowers. See-through fabrics have cropped up in the form of skirts, trousers and even full length gowns that manage to remain sophisticated with a tactical slip dress. For those slightly less daring, a strip of sheer down the leg of a pant can provide the allure while still feeling secure. Additionally, the frequent use of pastel sheer on the runway shows that it’s a look to be worn to lectures as well as on a night out.

MULTIPLE BAGS – Karl Lagerfeld had his models scurrying down the runway holding multiple bags and totes. This style was made for the university student, and will surely bring an end to precariously balancing a laptop and Tesco shopping bags on the walk home. Be it canvas or plastic that compliments your backpack, it is on trend to be juggling multiple carriers at once.

OVERSIZED JEWELLERY – The cold of a Scottish winter often means being wrapped up in the same coat, set of jumpers and assortment of jeans. Accessories give the chance to add a pop of colour or glam to an otherwise basic and interchangeable outfit. Whether it be large hoop earrings or oversized sunglasses, taking a ‘bigger is better’ attitude can really elevate a look.

FUNKY SOCKS- Often overlooked within an outfit, Pinterest reported that saves for sheer, patterned and embroidered socks went up by 72% for the new year. Whether they be on show with a pair of simple trainers or hidden underneath boots, socks are key to comfort and warmth. Now they have the additional appeal of tying a look together, with perhaps a subtle stitched phrase on the ankle or themed socks for upcoming holidays.

Hopefully these trends have been helpful in drumming up inspiration for the new semester. Whether you take the plunge and strut down Market Street in head-to-toe fringe or simply feel chic in your Paddington coat, stay warm this winter in trends that will adapt easily to the Spring season. The couture looks we see on the runway can often seem out of touch with our everyday style, but as Miranda so cleverly puts in the Devil Wears Prada, there is a “trickle-down effect” in fashion that will be seen on the streets of St Andrews this Spring. Also, if there is any doubt, remember that florals for Spring are ground-breaking.

  11. I oversee a vape shop web directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that also offers for sale CBD goods. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment method from our vape store website directory. We do not offer for sale CBD goods like CBD oil. We only provide web marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Wellness Store and if you take a close look, you will witness that they promote a surprisingly extensive variety of CBD items, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It appears that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to different firms. Due to this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restrained my payment possibilities and presently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in London and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely unlawful and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform benchmark to all firms. I am still to speak to another legal representative from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.

  15. I operate a vape shop directory site and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that additionally offers for sale CBD goods. A Month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take away PayPal as a payment method from our vape store submission site. We do not sell CBD items like CBD oil. We solely offer marketing and advertising services to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a close peek, you will see that they sell a relatively wide-ranging range of CBD product lines, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is applying double standards to different firms. Because of this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has restricted my payment possibilities and now, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in London and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether against the law and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform criterion to all firms. I am yet to speak to an additional lawyer from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
